Everyone’s probably heard of Solyndra but how many of you have heard of the Fisker Corporation? Two years ago, Henrik Fisker got $529,000,000 (yes, that’s $529 million) in government loan guarantees to start up his electric car company.  All the money hasn’t circled the bowl yet, but I’m predicting it will. Let’s start off with […]

Save the Planet, Kill a Child

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting really tired of hearing, reading and seeing “green.” Here’s the latest from Arrowhead Spring Water.  I heard about it on the radio and had to see for myself.  Sure enough, on our weekly trip to Walmart, I had my husband take these photos. Arrowhead’s touting the fact […]

Fisker Karma Goes Up In Flames

This is not the first time I’m writing about the Fisker Karma.  As I’ve said before, our government is hellbent on shoving “green” technology down our throats whether we like it or not. Well, here’s yet another story coming out of Texas: “Last week, a fire badly damaged the home of a new Fisker Karma owner, […]

Save the Patient? OR Save the Planet?

I’m not sure if the article I read is more a reflection on government-run health care or the screwiness of proponents of “green” anything;  it’s probably a little bit of both.  I think it’s worth mentioning and gives us a glimpse into the future. Being thousands of pages long and with the Supreme Court now […]


It seems every time I turn around, someone is telling me what to do.  I’m supposed to use some sort of “clear” detergent for my clothes; a particular type of soap for my dishes; PETA tries to tell me what to wear and what not to eat; Michelle Obama is telling what to eat and […]

Down the Drain

Well, I guess there’s still more problems with the Fisker automobile company.  I’ve written about Fisker before. Our government is hellbent on shoving “green” technology down our throats whether we like it or not.    In my opinion, the Fisker automobile is yet another one of those ventures which will turn out to be a debacle […]

I See Dumb People

And I also see some dumb ideas.  Take for example the use of “green” waterless urinals at a high school in Boca Raton, Florida. The school installed these useless urinals in order to save $100 a year per urinal and will end up paying $500,000 to fix the problem. “School officials at Spanish River High […]

Down the Drain – A Prediction

The money hasn’t yet circled the bowl, but I’m predicting it will. I just read about yet another investment made by the Obama Administration two years ago, thanks to the American taxpayer, for yet another “green” idea. I guess we didn’t spend enough on Solyndra. Henrik Fisker got $529,000 in government loan guarantees to start […]

Down the Drain

Well, it looks like another Obama-backed green company has gone belly up. Beacon Power Corp., an energy- storage company that received $43 million in backing from the U.S. program that supported failed solar-panel maker Solyndra LLC, filed for bankruptcy after struggling to raise private financing. According to an Energey Department spokesman, the loan agreement contains […]


Earlier in the year, we received a letter from our City Manager and City Council member which included our “first personalized Home Energy Report.”  The report compares our energy usage compared to our neighbors’. Our “most” efficient neighbors are graphed in green, “all” neighbors are graphed in orange and we’re graphed in, oh my God! […]
